Collaborate or Duplicate in Microsoft Forms

When we invite others to collaborate on our form or quiz, our co-authors can help add content, analyze responses, and share our form with others.

In Microsoft Forms, open the form or quiz we want to share to collaborate, then click on the three dots in the top right and then 'Collaborate or Duplicate'.

Microsoft Forms

Click on + Share the link to collaborate and view result.

Stop sharing a form or quiz

Note: Once we have removed the collaborate link, it's unusable for anyone that tries to click or tap on it. We can't recreate the same collaborate link, we can create a new link later for sharing with others.

Share as a template

We can easily share a form or quiz as a template so that colleagues and teachers can duplicate, customize, and use it as their own.

Step 1: Under Share as a template, select + Get a link to duplicate.

Microsoft Forms

Step 2: Select Copy and share the url.

Microsoft Forms

When our recipient clicks or taps on the link, they'll be able to duplicate our form and use it as their own. Our form serves as a template from which our recipient can then customize as desired.

Note: When we share a quiz or form as a template, only the content of it is duplicated. No existing response data is carried over to the new quiz or form when someone else duplicates it.
